Turtle is a blue/green creature type used for any reptile, either aquatic or terrestrial, with the trunk enclosed in a shell consisting of a dorsal carapace and a ventral plastron. A terrestrial turtle is also known as a tortoise.

The first creature card to bear the subtype Turtle was Giant Turtle in Legends, though Giant Tortoise from Arabian Nights was later issued errata in the Grand Creature Type Update to retroactively become a Turtle as well.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

The Shell of the Last Kappa. Art by David Martin.
  • Kappa were mysterious, goblin-like, water-dwelling creatures that once had lived on the plane of Kamigawa, but have since become extinct. Little is known about them, but they resembled a cross between a goblin and a turtle.
